New Video Training Helps Organizations Move from #MeToo to #NotHere
BELLEVUE, Wash, October 24, 2018–Media Partners Corporation, a leading producer of premier people skills training films and learning content, today released its latest training film production Once & For All: Stopping Sexual Harassment at Work. A little over a year ago ─ spurred by almost daily headlines exposing workplace sexual harassment─ Media Partners launched its most ambitious and largest investment ever in a new training program. The goal: help organizations move from sexual harassment awareness and compliance to prevention and behavior change.
“Most sexual harassment prevention training films on the market are terrible,” said John Hansen, CEO of Media Partners. “They are either so over-the-top that employees roll their eyes, or they are filled with so much legalese that employees are bored to tears. We approached this challenging topic with our typical Media Partners’ commitment to cinematic quality, providing realistic but memorable scenes that engage employees and empower them with information and instruction they can use to stop sexual harassment behavior in the workplace once and for all.”
“We know this issue is pervasive and disruptive, but we also believe it is fixable,” said Karen Edwards, vice president of marketing, Media Partners. “Changing behavior starts with great training, and you make sure that the learning doesn’t happen just once but is ongoing.”
